AOL to Launch AIM Phoneline Developer Initiative
AOL follows Skype step and tries to create a developer ecosystem for their on-line phone service, by announcing its new AIM Phoneline service to developers.

Through the Open AIM Phoneline initiative, device manufacturers and voice application developers alike are invited to create new applications and tools that will extend the value and functionality of the AIM Phoneline service, and introduce new features and peripherals to more than 43 million U.S. AIM users.

AOL will introduce three new application programming interfaces (APIs) in the fall that will give developers and manufacturers the ability to personalize the AIM Phoneline service by adding ringback tones and unique ring tones for frequent callers. In addition to that companies will have the ability to enable a variety of USB devices such as speakerphones and phone adapters that will allow standard cordless phones to initiate and receive calls with the AIM Phoneline service.

AOL is planning to use the Fall VON 2006 conference to showcase examples using these APIs. Iotum will show intelligent handling of incoming calls using their iotum Relevance Engine, and MyNuMo, an online content community that enables artists to create, show, and sell digital content that will be demonstrating ringback tones allowing for personalization by caller.

The hardware device API will also be featured during the show, and Mvox Technologies will demonstrate examples of its handsfree and wireless Bluetooth-enabled MV900 (pictured) and USB MV100 speakerphones with AIM Phoneline.

As part of the Open AIM Phoneline program, AOL will promote its partners' applications and devices at an online store that users can assess by simply clicking the "Shop" link off of the AIM Phoneline dashboard.
